Presentation Abstract

Discussion of why we do research and other fundamental questions relevant to our university's aspiration to increase research capacity and productivity. This talk will raise questions regarding misconceptions of the research enterprise; the false dichotomy between curiosity and utility as motivation for research; and how early research participation is a game-changer both in science education and the research enterprise. In addition, the question of whether research is a secular activity or a sacred vocation will be addressed.
